President Barack Obama maintains a lead of roughly 2-to-1 over all the Republican candidates in the state.

Pollsters telephoned more than 800 registered New York voters during the last week of February.

They found that an overwhelming majority, 64% believe that America’s best days are still to come. Only 31% said the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Meanwhile, in the race for the U.S. Senate, democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand has a strong favorability rating and 58% of voters surveyed say they would re-elect her. 

Pollsters say that without a well-known or well-funding challenger, Republicans will have a lot of catching up to do win the only statewide office up for election this year.
